Late Aku Uka was one of Nigeria’s greatest traditional rulers ― Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday described the death of a paramount traditional ruler, the Aku Uka of Wukari, and Chairman, Taraba State Council of Chiefs, Dr Shekarau Angyu Masa-Ibi, as a great loss not only to Taraba State but also to Nigeria as a whole.

According to a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), while reacting to the demise of the Taraba monarch, the President said: “the passing of Shekarau Angyu at this time when the country needed his immense wisdom and knowledge in its efforts to overcome its challenges, is a great loss for which I cannot find the right words to describe.”

According to President Buhari, “the late paramount ruler was a simple man who avoided publicity and controversy throughout his life of service to his people and the country.”

The President noted that “though death is inevitable, we cannot forget the immense contributions of the late Aku Uka to the promotion of peace, harmony, unity, tolerance and peaceful coexistence in his community and the country at large.”
